Details on deer disease in Ohio

In August, parts of Tuscarawas and Holmes counties in northern Ohio were declared Disease Surveillance Areas for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), a fatal, easily spreadable illness of deer, elk, moose and caribou.

What does the declaration mean for deer farmers and deer hunters in those areas? What does the disease threat mean for Ohio hunters in general, including those who may travel to hunt in other states or in Canada?

Get answers to those questions in “Chronic Wasting Disease in White Tailed Deer,” a talk from 10:30-11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, in the Gwynne Conservation Area at next week’s CFAES-sponsored Farm Science Review.
